The Breakfast Club

September 21, 2011

“All happiness depends on a leisurely breakfast.”

This is a chain with 4 locations in London – Hoxton – Angel – Soho – Spitalfields – spreading sun and energy on your breakfast.
They first opened in Soho in 2005 and then quickly grew with success until their last baby that appeared in Spitalfields in May 2011 – I’m sure they won’t stop there. But for now, I’m going to talk about the one located on the lovely Camden Passage in Angel.

“Douce France,
Cher pays de mon enfance,
Bercée de tendre insouciance,
Je t’ai gardée dans mon coeur”
